A native of Southern California, Darin was introduced to the world of entertainment at a very early age. His father worked as a stage hand/technician for NBC, CBS up until his retirement back in the early 2000’s. Born in Van Nuys, California in 1965, Darin’s parents decided to name him after one of his father’s friends in the industry, Bobby Darin…thus the spelling. Darin got his middle name after John Glenn, the Astronaut. Darin’s parents were both artistically and musically inclined. Having a father who worked in the industry, Darin was given the unique opportunity to not only observe artistry in the making, but he was also able to mingle with celebrities and production crew alike.
